Dear Mr. Westberry,
My name is Ruth Marie Westberry. I was born in Waycorss, Georgia in 1926; Daughter of Lonnie Colon Westberry Sr. born in Gardi, Georgia and Emma Adeline Dukes of Charleston, South Carolina. I am trying to research My Family tree of the Westberry's and I found a note in my Dad's Bible Several years ago about a picnic party one of the Westberry's was having for a reunion. I am sorry I could not have been to it but that was several years ago I believe it was in 1965. I wondered if you would help me by giving me some information and I will share my information with you. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
My Dad died 1964, My Mother died 1937. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. There are a lot of Westberry's in Jessup, Ga. , are they related to me? If you would send me some addresses of my relatives I will write to them.

Thank you very much
Sincerely,
Ruth Westberry Forsythe
